A Metagenomic Analysis of the Microbial Composition of Apis mellifera Pollen Preserves throughout the Foraging Season

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

In this research project, we attempt to leverage the benefits of rapidly advancing DNA sequencing techniques to characterize how the microbial composition in bee foraged pollen provisions change in relation to shifts in foraging preferences. This research describes general patterns of plant foraging behaviors for multiple hives across a single foraging season as well as the variability of microbial composition associated with this foraging behavior.
